You should probably update your archive-extraction software. Maybe your tar program doesn't like the character in the directory name "PC 5 floppies"?

I recommend decompressing the .xz file on your PC, then using an Amiga version of tar to unpack it.

The Amiga version of tar I use is attached. It's the same as Tar/bin/tar in util/arc/tar-patched on Aminet, but with the binary bug-fix patch given in Tar/patch01/src/part01 applied.

[That particular Amiga port of tar is quite handy, since it understands/archives/restores Amiga file comments; most other Amiga tar ports probably don't.]

Edit to add: Strange. I tried unpacking the archive with GNU tar 1.27.1 on Linux, and while all files did unpack, I have to sudo to root in order to list the files in the subdirectory.
